December 5th, a night that will live in infamy!

Turns out my muffler gasket deteriorated and fell into my exhaust passage and partially blocked it. This allowed the water and exhaust to back up and choke the engine. With umpteen hours of work and $30 worth of parts she should make a full recovery. I Techroned the engine last night so tonight I will see how the compression does, etc. Parts should be in early next week so I will keep you all posted after it's checkout run.

Thank you all for your concerns, condolences, and e-mail sympathy cards. We hope to see you on the water after a speedy recovery. I am going to start my 4 stroke fund anyway so maybe in a couple years it will be funded(Ha!).
